For those in New Jersey wanting to view the spectacular Macy's fireworks display should head to Weehawken, northern Hoboken and Jersey City Heights for unobstructed views. However, if you don't mind a bit of obstruction, another option is to head down to the waterfront in downtown.


Tens of thousands of people will head to the City of Hoboken, particularly along Maxwell Park, which is on the waterfront along 11th Street to 14th Street.


Another great spot to view the lights is Sinatra Drive, which is also along a waterfront along 1st Street to 15th Street. The streets will be closed to all traffic and only pedestrians will be able to enter.


The City of Hoboken discourages driving and encourages visitors to take public transportation. The PATH, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, NY Waterway ferries and NJ transit commuter rail or bus are also options.


The 36th Annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks will officially take place tonight at 9 pm. Howeer, the actual fireworks will start at 9.20 p.m. This year's fireworks display "Ignite the Night" will last 25 minutes to a synchronized mix of the hottest pop songs that were chosen by the American public through Macy's Facebook page. Over 40,000 fireworks will be lit off tonight, along with spectacular performances from pop star Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney.


Songs that will be featured to the fireworks display are:
"Silverado," "America the Beautiful," "Yankee Doodle," "God Bless the U.S.A.", "Armed Forces Medley," "America," "Sparks Fly," "One Moment in Time," "Stars and Stripes Forever," "The Star Spangled Banner," and "God Bless America."
Macy's has also launched an official app to provide information about the display. The app, which will be available on iTunes and Google Play, will feature transit and viewing information and details of the show. Users may also listen to synchronized musical score live with the app.
